A piece of spalted yellow birch with a bit of blue inlay. 7 1/2” wide by 2” tall. One of my favorites so far.

Looks good Chris, and I like the inlay. Since you seem to be working with spalted wood, here’s a link that you might find informative on the topic.

As far as the inlay goes, are you using turquoise for that beautiful blue?
Keep those project coming.
